paper world

cardboard heaven sculpture by artist nina lindgren.  the simplicity of her chosen materials, geomteric composition and the tiny focal points of windows are just fascinating.  you can see images of the creation process here.

quiet moments…

you know when you come across an image an think: i should go there, that should be me…

a book-filled nook for whimsy

i am side-hoppingly happily to announce the imminent appearance of whimsy notebooks & cards in The Book Lounge in cape town.  this wonderful book store stocks a wide & unusual range of books (not only the regulars to be had at exclusive books or cna) and hosts many exciting book-related events!

yay, whimsy is on the way!

oil & water : in honour of a rainy city

these are paintings…p-a-i-n-t-i-n-g-s!

keeping in spirit with the drizzling wonderland durban has become this week, i thought i would introduce you to gregory thielker.  his oil paintings depict rainy days viewed from inside a car so realistically that you can almost feel the wet, cold weather just looking at them. The realism in his work is not just in his stunning technique, but also in the way the paintings can give you the peaceful and melancholic feeling of a car trip under a melancholy sky…

Gregory Thielker is simply amazing. His oil on canvas artworks depict rainy days viewed from inside a car so realistically that you can almost feel the wet and cold weather, looking at them. The realism in his work is not just in his stunning technique, but also in the way the paintings can give you the peaceful and melancholic feeling of a car trip under a pouting rain.

the monster factory

i adore these monster critters from the monster factory, a character toy brand run by Adam Dunn, Rhya Tamasauskas, and Bliss Man. together they design and create engaging monster characters who live in a strangely familiar world.
